One of my favorite, absolutely FAVORITE things about Nashville, Tennessee is the wildlife. I mean, in the last month we’ve seen a Bobcat stalking a Woodchuck, Owls hunting Pepper the Wannabe Cat for dinner and even two young Red Tailed Hawks playing morning tag in our backyard. Love that!
What I don’t love about Nashville, Tennessee is that along with the awesome wildlife, we have a plethora of bugs and things that creep and crawl. Like, for example, the massive Spider that made a big sticky web in front of the patio door this weekend. The massive sticky web I found and removed on Tuesday BEFORE I stepped into it but didn’t realize he’d rebuilt it and proceeded to step INTO it yesterday FACE FIRST.
Luckily I saw said gigantic, probably poisonous and totally deadly, Spider on the wall after I did the “Eeeek!!! WHATTHE HECKIT’SONMYFREAKIN’FACE!!!” dance, so I know she isn’t now nesting in my hair, laying eggs that will emerge during the middle of the night to swarm my body and bite me for food.
Even luckier, Husband’s security camera caught the “Eeeek!!! WHATTHEHECKIT’SON MYFREAKIN’FACE!!!” dance, and subsequent de-webbing for your viewing pleasure.
Add in your own soundtrack of screeching as you enjoy these blurry security camera pictures of my pain. And don't feel so bad for Spider. She built the damn web again last night and almost got me again!
UPDATE: She's back! Night four of web making. This isn't the actual size of the spider. IT'S BIGGER THAN THIS!!!
